Rugby sevens player Greg O'Shea has said he has no regrets over giving up a cel- ebrity lifestyle after winning Love Island to focus on his dream of qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics.

O'Shea, who won the fifth series of the show last year, has more than 1.2 million followers on Instagram, but decided to move back to Limerick instead of working the celebrity circuit in London.

Nuts

"It's nuts, I had the option of moving to the UK and being the it-person," O'Shea (25) told the Olympic Channel.

"But that didn't sit right because I've been working for so long to get to the Olympics and play in the World Series."
